6 Aug, 2018 in Around Paris, Visions

This summer I was invited for a few weeks to Paris, and was looking for new things to explore in the area. A local I met who grow up in Chantilly strongly recommended I check it out, a quick daytrip from Paris, so I decided to rent a car and combine Chantilly with exploring the […]

1 Oct, 2017 in Daytrips from Sapporo

I did lots of daytrips around Hokkaido, and the last one I’ll mention was on the way to Furano, stopping by Asahikawa. Really wasn’t sure what to do in the area, didn’t do my homework, and had very little time, but the person at the hotel suggested taking the shuttle to see the local ice museum. […]

23 Sep, 2017 in Daytrips from Sapporo

While spending the summer in Sapporo in Hokkadio, at the northern region of Japan, I made a number of daytrips to explore a bit of the mountainous region of Furano. I ended up in a mountainous cultural village Ningle Terrance located next to fancy hotsprings of the New Furano Prince Hotel Onsen with a nearby cable car, the […]

10 Apr, 2017 in Tivoli

To wrap up the wonderful daytrip to Tivoli from Rome with my little sis (see previous “Gardens of Villa d’Este : Tivoli”), I’ll take you on a walking tour around Tivoli and we’ll end it at the Parco Villa Gregoriana down the town acropolis with dream-like forests, gorges, waterfalls, and – ofcourse – gorgeous historical architecture and […]

10 Jan, 2017 in Daytrips from Sapporo

More cable cars in Hokkaido? you got it. A quick daytrip from Sapporo, where I spent most of the last summer, is the lovely Niseko area, well known as a great ski resort. Since I love cable cars and just can’t get enough of them, when given the choice between going up the mountain for grand […]

My recent summer was mostly spent in Asia, with the longest time spent in Japan. Since it was boiling hot down in central Japan, I made an unexpected change in my plans and went up to Hokkaido, to see a bit of the wonderful scenic north and cool down a bit on the mountains. I […]

Labyrint Drielandenpunt Belgium (9)

  On the Dutch side of the 3-country border with Belgium and Germany is the small town of Vaals (Vaalsberg). From Vaals up south on towards the mountain is an interesting place worth visiting. On the exact point the countries meet is a little sign with three flags you can take your photo with, and just […]

Alden Biesen Castle Rijkhoven Belgium (1)

At the small village of Rijkhoven in the eastern Belgium region of Limburg bordering with the Dutch Limburg and the city of Maastricht is a 16th century castle – Alden Biesen. It’s not the grandest or the most beautiful castle in the area, but if you’re in the area, or looking for a day trip […]

Visions of Valdenburg Netherlands (12)

Netherlands is filled with surprises. Just 20mins by train or bus from Maastricht to the east in the Limburg province in southern Netherlands, is the lovely town of Valkenburg. It has, TA-DA, hills! hills so high (compared to the rest of the Netherlands) that someone thought it was worth setting up a gondola cable chair […]

Visions of Sintra Portugal (4)

  My visit to Portugal during carnival week in the Netherlands was a trip to remember. Flying in with zero knowledge and expectations, I had the most wonderful time exploring Lisbon, but the nicest day was – by far – the daytrip to Sintra. Unlike most days I had in Lisbon, the weather cleared up, the […]
